Rosemary tea is a soothing, piney-flavored herbal tea that is a powerful antioxidant, as well as being a source of a range of vitamins including Vitamin A; the B vitamins thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, B6 and B12; and Vitamins C, D, E and K.
You can make rosemary tea from both fresh and dried rosemary leaves. If you use fresh leaves, you’ll want to bruise or crush them first so they release more of their oils while steeping.
To make the tea, use about 1 teaspoon of fresh or dried rosemary leaves per cup of boiled water. Put the leaves in a tea infuser, and steep.
This is an herbal tea, so it needs to steep longer than a black or green tea does. Fresh rosemary will need to steep longer than dried. After steeping about five minutes, add some honey to sweeten to taste, and drink.
Rosemary tea is said to have many health benefits, including improved circulation, improved brain function and inhibiting weight gain, so if you find rosemary tea to your liking, you may be improving your health while you sip your tea.
